Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions is a video game released on the GameCube, Xbox and PlayStation 2. This game is a driving game which the player completes missions in downtown Hong Kong.

The game's then-groundbreaking graphics for the Xbox made it successful for that console. However, the GameCube and PlayStation 2 versions suffered from performance issues and did not sell well.

Story[edit | edit source]

Set in Hong Kong, the player plays as either part of a corrupt police unit attempting to crack down on rival Yakuza operations, or as a pair of spies hired to take down Tiger Takagi, the head of the Hong Kong Yakuza.[1]

Characters[edit | edit source]

Madoka and Mei

One plays as a Japanese female police officer and a Chinese female police officer in the Hong Kong police force paid to hunt selected Yakuza members.

Ho and Chang

One plays as two goofy Chinese spies working for the Hong Kong crime syndicate to uncover the plots of the Yakuza and take over their operations.

Vehicles: Drive Suped up Police Vehicles,Deadly Spy Vehicles (With implanted rockets)to Garbage Trucks.
